People with hernias usually experience swelling, a bulge or pain in the abdomen, pelvis or groin area. They may also have pain or discomfort, especially when bending over, coughing or lifting. Those with hernias also have weakness, pressure or a feeling of heaviness in their abdomen and often have acid reflux, chest pain or difficulty swallowing.
